Best Western Karl Johan Hotell

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is in a central location with easy walking or public transportation access to the whole city. The room is spacious, clean, and comfortable, and the breakfast combining traditional Norwegian with other options is exceptional.

Room is small but not unexpected right in downtown. Excellent location, central to everything. Staff was friendly and helpful, everyone spoke English very well. One day was a bit noisy due to loud music from a restaurant 1 block down. Otherwise, no issues. Breakfast that came with room cost was very good and better than most warm breakfasts in the US.

Great location in the heart of Oslo! our room was comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was a delicious and diverse spread! The only tricky thing is that there was no AC and we were there at a particularly warm time and so our room got pretty warm at night. but if you don't mind the road noise, sleeping with the windows open was a great solution! hotel staff was awesome to work with and so helpful- thanks for the great stay!

The hotel is beautiful and located right downtown.

I really like this hotel. The breakfast is nice with good variety. The location is great. Close to offices for business, and great location for shopping. The only down side is that there isn't a gym to use. I have stayed at this hotel many times. The room during my most recent stay was a bit small - I am a thin person and I had to shower side ways to fit in. The room set up was strange too as it was hard to lie in bed and watch tv. But other rooms I have had weren't like that. It is good value.

we loved this hotel! It was central to everything! The staff were friendly, the beds were Comfy and I don't think I've ever had a better continental breakfast!

The hotel location is the biggest asset for this hotel. It is on the main strip of Karl Johan Street, close to a variety of restaurants, train station, shopping and walking distance to the harbor. The hotel property is old and in need of an update. The amenities are scarce or non-existent. The hotel rooms can be very noisy if you open the windows as it is right on Karl Johan where all the restaurants are. We were there in June where the sun was out and so was everyone. Noise, however, is a small price to pay for the great location.

Centrally located right on Karl Johans Gatan, you cannot beat the location. EVerything and anything is steps away from the hotel. But the room was tiny, enough for the KIng bed, which was really just 2 double beds put together. Besides that there was a bathroom that you had to take 2 steps up/ Room was clean, the view unfortunately was nopt to the street but faced other rooms. The elevator was tiny as well, they did offer free tea or coffee in the parlor rooms on each floor though. Customer service was nice. If you can get a bigger room i would recommend.

This is just a very nice hotel in a good location with really friendly staff.

The hotel need major updating but the price and location is great.

We stayed for one night. Staff was very helpful. We had so much luggage they gave us an extra large room. They also stored our luggage for 9 hours the next day before we left town. I traveled with my mother and my teenage daughter and her friend. Not manyl hotels in Norway would allow 4 people in one room. No extra hidden charges, which many other hotels had. Delicious breakfast and great location in the middle of all the sightseeing, shops and restaurants. Very cosmopolitan city. Lots of outdoor restaurants. This may be a 3 star, but it has all you really need. Just bring your own toiletries. I would stay there again.

the hotel was recommended as a good stay between 2 flights: it's NOT because the transportation from the airport to the hotel is very expensive: € 100 for a cab (one way) or € 25 per person by bus (one way).

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is right in the city center, just a short walk from museums, restaurants, and other attractions. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the Nobel Suite. It was absolutely wonderful! The suite was huge and the bathroom was very large. The only drawback was there was a festival going on one night, and since the suite was on the second floor facing the square and the park, it was somewhat noisey; however, the location and view made up for the noise. The breakfast which was included was very nice.

The hotel is located very close to all the City attractions and makes it very convenient for first time sight seers'

This was great hotel at an affordable rate for Oslo. My twin bed room also had a couch TV and small balcony. The breakfast in the morning, which was included, was also pretty good. It is located on the main drag in Oslo, so everything to do is close by.

We had a room at the front of the building. Right in the heart of the city. Easy access to public transportation. Visited numerous museums and some great dining location.
